The District Plan is the city-wide rule book that controls the location of development and its associated form throughout the city as well as helping to protect the environment as the city continues to grow.
Porirua’s current District Plan became operative in 1999, and our community and the challenges that we face today are very different to those in 1999. These include the continuing pressure to grow and develop, the need to restore the health of the Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour and the opening of Transmission Gully. In response to these and other challenges, we are reviewing our District Plan.
We worked with the community in the 2017 Make Your Mark campaign as well as the 2018 draft objectives and policies consultation. We have also consulted on specific aspects of the District Plan including ecology and landscapes, coastal hazards and flood modelling.
We have now released a full draft District Plan for community feedback. We want to check in with the community to ensure we have 'hit the mark' before we formally notify the Proposed District Plan under the Resource Management Act.
There is a range of evidence and technical information to support the direction and provisions in the draft District Plan. You can review some this on our supporting information webpage
The draft District Plan includes objectives, policies, rules and maps. It has no legal effect and is for community consultation only.
Our ePlan contains draft objectives, policies and rules that relate to areas and activities in our city.
Our draft District Plan maps, which include zones and overlays, show what is proposed where.
